Summary: Got this unit 3 months ago to upgrade from an old Optimus Dolby Pro-logic receiver. This receiver has performed perfectly since I installed it. No HDMI issues at all w/ my Samsung cable box, SONY Bravia TV or BD player.
Great receiver. If looking for a sub $500.00 receiver, definitely check tho

Summary: Great receiver. I had read about this receiver on c/net.com. While c/net listed the DN840 as the better value, when I saw that the reduced price put the DN1040 on par with the DN840, I opted for the former. The design of the unit is clean and not overly cluttered as some receivers.
Summary: Had this receiver up and running for 4 days now and no hdmi problems what so ever. It seems either you get one with hdmi problems or not. Great sound quality on Movies and music. Moved to the sony from a yamaha rx v773 that didn't sound that great with music, to my ears anyway.
Summary: UPDATE: After the newest software update my DN1040 is working -for the most part- quite well. Some random notes: The good news is that I am hearing music differently with this receiver. Nuances that I've never noticed before. And when the HDMI works it works well. Airplay is awesome.
Great sound and Connectivity, yet disappointing remote and wifi control

Summary: Upgraded form an Onkyo TX-806 receiver. Sound quality far superior and wifi, airplay and bluetooth connectivity live up ot what Sony represented. However the remote control, is a throw back to the 80's and Sony's on-screen AV control app is minimally functional.
Summary: Bought this to replace Sony STR-DE935 which quit working after 14yrs. Stepped up to HDMI. Receiver works great, usually Sony quality. At first I was concerned about "B speakers" hook-up. I had outdoor speakers hooked up to b speakers on my old system.
Summary: This is a feature rich, very nice receiver. It can accommodate two zones. However, you cannot operate both zones with two different sources simultaneously. For us, this is a deal breaker. We have a home entertainment system in our living room and outdoor speakers around our deck.
Summary: Overall very happy with the receiver. Thankfully I bought it from Amazon since after a few weeks the DVD channel went flaky and the SA/CATV input went intermittent. Sony didn't have a solution and they only offered to repair returned units.
